What can I expect from virtual Animal Care Expo Online?

Animal Care Expo Online will be an exciting and robust virtual conference experience. We’ll have:

  • Over 30 sessions, including several in Spanish, on a variety of topics with continuing education credits available;
  • An exhibit hall featuring many of the companies and organizations who typically exhibit at the face-to-face Expo, showcasing their products and services for the animal welfare field;
  • A networking lounge where you can chat with other attendees as well as speakers;
  • and more.

What’s included with my registration fee?

Your $29 registration fee grants you access to the full virtual conference beginning on our live dates of July 22-24. After the live dates, you will continue to have access to the conference content and resources through November 1, 2020.

How long is the $29 registration rate good for?

The $29 advance registration rate is good through July 7, 2020. After July 7, registration will be $49. Registration is now open and you can still register even after the live dates have passed to have access to the content on-demand through November 1, 2020.

Why should I try to attend the live dates, instead of just watching sessions at a later date?

During the conference live dates, you’ll have the greatest opportunity for an interactive experience with speakers, exhibitors and other attendees. During each session’s time slot, speakers will be available for live Q&A with viewers. During our exhibit hall open hours, exhibitors will be manning their booths and available for live chat. The majority of attendees will be online during the live dates, so this is also your best opportunity to meet and network with them. And we’ll have games/contests going on with great prizes that you won’t want to miss!

After the live dates, you can still view sessions and visit the exhibit hall, but you may have to leave a message for speakers and exhibitors if you have questions, for them to get back to you at a later date. You can still chat with other attendees, but you’ll only be able to chat with attendees who are logged in at the same time you are. If you want the best opportunity to interact with everyone at Expo, try to join us on our live dates.

What if I’m busy during the live dates, July 22 - 24?

That’s okay, you can still register! All of our Animal Care Expo Online content will be available on-demand through November 1, 2020. Watch sessions, email exhibitors, meet up with other attendees and more, all on your own time whenever it is convenient for you.
